Railing from missteps
Time slips through my fingers
I can’t catch breaths
With every blink, I beat my breasts and suckle solar flares
Somehow I’m running from my right to be bare
I wash in polarising pools of platitudes and curses
What’s love if they only say patience is a virtue?
My life ain’t chapters they’re verses
I hammer definitions like a wordsmith.
Flattered by my flaws there’s no iron in my steel.
I’m arrested by bars but.
Somehow I am the keys I can’t feel.
How can I drive my life if everything else takes the wheel?
You tell me
What’s the formula one needs?
Is it bleed, heal and repeat?
Is it greet, grope and retreat?
Is it please, police, preach and never teach?
When you’re aiming for the stars….
You don’t lighten the darkness reaching for bleach!
